Digital Dead Sea Scrolls

If you are studying religion or are just generally interested in history you can now read through five of the famous Dead Sea Scrolls online.

The Israel Museum got some help from Google and together they launched The Digital Dead Sea Scrolls today. The scrolls were written between the third and first centuries BCE and then hidden in eleven caves in which they remained hidden until 1947 when a Bedouin shepherd found them.

The scans are done in very high quality so you are able to zoom in on the smallest details. One of the scrolls, the Great Isaiah Roll is also searchable via Google.
